Being anyone’s nature means some sort of qualities or characteristic that one has. I think it may encompass the emotional expressions like anger or happiness or even personal qualities like kindness or cruelty. So for anyone to talk of his or her nature is more of something he or she cannot change and will always be like that. For example there are people who will always look very angry thus unpopular to the fact that many people will tend to avoid them for fear of coming head on with this anger facial expression.

I remember a day I was in a school meeting and as parents we are introduced to a new staff member and the parents frankly wondered if she would be able to handle their grievances given the seriousness look on her face which made her look angry.

As she stood up to address the parents, she is friendly to work with and they should just assume the nature of her looking a bit serious. But just out of curiosity, is it true that sometimes what we take to be a nature thing may send totally different signals of who we really are.

But then a smile makes us beautiful and so if it’s your nature to smile then the best it is for you. Then something else, as human beings its true we tend to hide in this my nature situation depending on the prevailing circumstances. This means we can still change our usual looks to fit in what we are going through.

But what of kindness, harshness or cruelty, these are qualities that are encompassed in the ‘my nature scenario’ but they are more of someone’s choice. It’s obvious to hear people talk of someone with a good heart meaning easy to deal with but vice versa for someone in the opposite side of  having a good heart.
